Multi-Granular (MG) switching concept has emerged as a strong candidate to alleviate the scalability problems of the conventional optical switching that will result from the expected exponential traffic growth in the optical transport networks. On the other hand, this tremendous increase in the bandwidth demands will also introduce the energy bottleneck in the transport networks. Furthermore, significant contribution of the telecommunication networks to the Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GGE) has… CONTINUE READING
